BISHOP TELLS C.W.L. OF DANGER TO SCHOOLS
Presiding at the annual meeting of the Brighton and Hove section of the Catholic Women's League, held in the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Hove, on Tuesday, Archbishop Amigo, Bishop of Southwark, asked for special prayers on February 5, which is to be a day of intercession in the dioceses of Westminster and Southwark.
